Leading US technology company Equinix and Swedish telecommunications firm Ericsson have announced the extension of their existing partnership, now geared towards offering IT solutions aimed at improving telecommunication network performance.

In its latest Mobility Report, Ericsson forecasts that by 2023, the number of mobile 5G subscriptions will reach 1bn, whilst data traffic will increase by a factor of eight.

With this in mind, network operators will increasingly look for innovative solutions in the aim of, not only capitalising upon, but also supporting this market growth.

Leveraging the Equinix Performance Hub, providing businesses with access to major network and cloud service providers, Ericsson and Equinix will work to create a range of managed services to address network transformation and optimisation initiatives.

“Digitisation will create an estimated $2tn in value over the next decade, but to successfully capture this opportunity, remain competitive, create unique experiences and manage costs, operators need to reinvent themselves, their processes, infrastructures and business models,” said Greg Adgate, Vice President of Global Alliances, Equinix.

“This partnership allows Ericsson to deliver an end-to-end offer to support customers’ digital transformation initiatives, delivered with Ericsson’s technology platforms and managed services.”

This latest extension to the partnership between the two companies follows their existing collaborations with Ericsson looking to deploy its Unified Delivery Network solution within Equinix’s data centres, in addition to Ericsson having joined the Equinix Channel Partner Program.
